I wish we could go to the Cedar Creek pottery and glass weekend, but alas we must stay home and tend the shop and studio. The gallery and plants are pretty cool and they host a lot of interesting shows through the year

Hi Linda, yeah that black rainbow glaze surface is tingly. Looks like you had a good time at the beach.
